Safe & Effective Wisdom Teeth Extraction in Etobicoke

Sometimes, wisdom teeth grow in and cause no problems – but not very often. For the rest of us, the development of wisdom teeth comes with a whole series of complications. When wisdom teeth begin to erupt, they create a flap of gum tissue that grows over the tooth, creating a space for food to become trapped and cause gum infection.

Why Do I Need to Extract My Wisdom Tooth?

Most of the time, wisdom teeth do not have the room to grow properly which can cause problems, such as:

  • The teeth remain completely hidden within the gums: If they do not emerge properly, they can get trapped within the jawbone or gums, which is a very painful situation.
  • Your mouth is not big enough: Your jaw has no room for an extra set of molars. In such cases, they can crowd or damage nearby teeth.
  • You can develop cavities: Since they are so far back in your mouth, it can get difficult to reach your wisdom teeth with your tooth brush or dental floss.

How is it Removed?

  • Your dentist will give you some type of anesthesia so that you do not feel pain during the removal
  • Your gums or bone may need to be cut to get the teeth out.
  • The wounds are stitched up so that they heal quickly. Stitches will dissolve in a few days.
  • Most people have little or no pain after the surgery.

Recovery Tips:

Follow these tips for the first three days after the surgery, for a quick recovery. You should:

  • Use an ice pack on your face to reduce any swelling
  • Use moist heat for a sore jaw
  • Do some gentle exercise with your jaw
  • Eat soft foods

Precautions after the Surgery

You should avoid:

  • Rinsing your mouth
  • Spitting
  • Consuming alcohol and smoking
  • Consuming hot liquids such as tea or soup
  • Drinking with straw
